Ryan Christmas

Minister of Missions and Operations

Ryan Christmas is the Minister of Missions and Operations at NorthPark, where he began serving in 2010. He attended NorthPark and was involved in the NorthPark student ministry as a high school student in our area. While attending college in Tuscaloosa, Ryan began to feel a possible call to ministry and a desire to serve the local church.

This desire led him back to NorthPark, and in 2010 he began serving as our Student Ministry Associate. He soon moved into the Minister to Students position, where he served until 2020, and then began serving in his current role. Ryan is passionate about building mission partnerships in our local community, state, country and around the world. He also loves helping to equip members of the local church to “live sent”, no matter what season of life they are in.

Ryan has a Master of Divinity degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, as well as both undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Alabama. He strongly values the Word of God and believes that life change
